Commentary from Pastor Mike White:

And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, “Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands!” – Mk 6:2

The word “that” connects Jesus’ mighty works to His wisdom. Every man and woman who heard Him speak was astonished at His wisdom; and every person who saw Him heal marveled at His mighty works!

Wisdom and power are inextricably linked. If we seek to perform mighty works for God, but do not pursue His wisdom, we will be left neither. But if we seek His wisdom, and understand that power comes with it, we will see both in our lives!

Seek to understand God’s word. Ask Him for more wisdom in your life. Seek wisdom first, and mighty works will follow.

Prayer:

Father, I seek Your wisdom first. I want to see You perform mighty works through my hands; but I know that can only happen when I seek to genuinely understand You for all You are! Help me to seek wisdom first!
